"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
nightly surrogate for the Obama campaign orange-hued Keith Olbermann bellowed the opening spiel: No Michigan revote! McCain lies about Iran! Or is he "out of it"? (Yes, the "delusional" smear again!) Cheney says Screw You! It's hump day at Olbermann Watch, and quite a milestone. The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann was caught in so many lies tonight that it might well be a new Guiness World Record!
#5: Clips of Obama speech. Clinton in Detroit pushing for a re-vote even though the issue is "moot", and what's worse, she's blaming Obama. Olby rushed to defend, saying that it's "not in Obama's power" to determine because the state Senate won't consider it. Conveniently Edward R Olbermann omits the fact that the state Senate won't take it up until Obama gives his OK, which he hasn't done. Clinton schedules heavily redacted but show her helping to pass NAFTA. More slobbering over The Speech. Bear again complains that Hillary praised Petraeus and was respectful to McCain. Dana Milbank, without weird wardrobe, muttered about bimbo eruptions and tried to explain why insulting Petraeus was not a good thing but was still Great Thanksed.
More on the revote. Hillary went to Michigan after the decision was already made "and tried to blame it on Obama". Monkeymann says HIllary is "backfilling" and cites earlier contradictory statements. He suggested the "nomination process is over". Todd nattered and was Great Thanksed.
After a "lunatic fringe water-carrier" [Ding!] came #4: John McCain made a mistake. "Are you forgetting, or lying?" Didn't Oralmann call him a liar in the spiel? Why is he pretending he didn't? He's "McBush"! "Right-wing radio"! [Ding!] Yes, Merkle ran all over again the clip he played four times in one hour earlier this week. It's either a "two-day senior moment" or "a bald-faced lie"! Lefty Alter bloviated that McCain is trying to "confuse Americans" but when he started to talk about the true threat from Iran, Herr Olbermann interrupted and told him to address McCain's mistakes. The speech policy on OlbyPlanet is rougher than the most PC University. No surprise, Lefty was not Great Thanksed.
#3: Five years in Iraq. Herr Olbermann contradicted Bush statements with "reporting" from Rolling Stone. Cheney said "So?" Far-left Soltz revealed a shocking fact: we went into Iran for WMDs. Stop the presses! Plus he asked the musical question, with the situation so horrible, how are these recruiters going to be able to recruit anyone? (See Dogs below for an exemplification of how leaving out inconvenient news propels OlbySpin.) "Man on Fan" Oblermann added that the President and the Veep "made fools out of themselves" today, and a good time was had by all.
We got a "comedian" [Ding!] and Oralmann's claim that "Sean Hannity called Barack Obama an anti-Semite". Do you think this might be Another Olbermann Lie? #2: a plug for #1. #1: Chuckles with comedian Rachel Maddow of Err America. Olby: Bush is a "chicken little". Comedian! [Ding!] Fox Noise! [Ding!] He went on to say that Fox didn't cover Iraq today. Oops, Another Olbermann Lie. Fox has been doing an all-week series about five years in Iraq, and Oralmann lied by making no mention of it. Here's what Bathtub Boy was too incompetent or lazy or dishonest to tell you about, even though every segment can be viewed right on the Fox website:
Olbermann also lied about O'Reilly, claiming that tonight he featured the "culture quiz" (yet another lie). Does Edward R Olbermann fact check anything or does he make it up as he goes along? Fixed News! [Ding!] Olby and Mandow chortled about O'Reilly's war reporting. Ah the self-delusional irony on OlbyPlanet. O'Reilly's has gone to Iraq and Afghanistan. Keith has gone to spring training.
In the Media Matters Minute, Fat Ass attacked Sean Hannity of Fixed News [Ding!], who said that if Obama agreed with Jeremiah Wright it would make him a racist anti-Semite. So claiming that Hannity said Obama was an anti-Semite--still another Olbermann Lie. Herr Olbermann, who was censured by the Anti-Defamation League, insisted Hannity's audience were racists and anti-Semites. To prove it he quoted a comment that appeared on Hannity's online forum that Obama's background might "get him killed as President". Bear blustered that Hannity "permits assassination fantasies" on his website. Wait a second, wasn't Olby ridiculing O'Reilly for objecting to comments on the Daily Kos and HuffPo? Olbypocrisy will not stop a demagogue like Krazy Keith when he's on a roll.
Oh by the way, Keith's claim that the comment was an "assasination fantasy"? Another Olbermann Lie. He stopped quoting the comment somewhat prematurely, since the writer went on to add: "I'd hope for it not to happen".
Dogs That Did Not Bark: Once again, a veritable cornucopia of canine confidentials that Edward R Olbermann deliberately withheld from the gullible groupies who hang on his every word, shoulder shrug, and drop of spittle. The Obama worship is so sanctimonious on The Hour of Spin that nothing is allowed to interfere with the Leni Riefenstahl of cable news. Bear rhapsodized over the stunning, wondrous nature of Barack's apologia speech. But isn't Olby supposed to be a reporter? In between getting additional stains all over the blue dress, couldn't he do a little reporting? And so it is that a major Obama endorsement was also spiked; it just doesn't exactly help the Illionois Senator. And with all the talk tonight about how stressed the Army is, how strange is it that the latest re-enlistment statistics were somehow never brought up? Not strange at all. This is OlbyPlanet, after all.
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, an especially repellent 683rd day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted".
